Leupold lists this scope as a rimfire scope, yet some people recommend it for use on a 45-70. I would love to hear from anyone that has actually used this scope on a Marlin 1895 45-70. Any durability issues? Pros/cons?

That scope will be fine on anything from a 22 up to a 458 Lott and beyond.

I've never seen it listed as a rimfire scope

Just went to their website. A little confusing for sure. But it's rimfire/ultralight. Leupold recently got rid of a lot of their scopes. The only ultralight left in production is the 2.5. And their is only one specifically made rimfire scope. I believe they just combined them in a subpage

If it is specifically for a rimfire, the parallax may be set for 50 yards or less. I would call Leupold and If you wanted it set for a longer distance, they might even do it for you.

My favorite scope for general hunting. Have one on my 336 and another one on my 1895. Never had a problem with any of the ones I've used
